NATACHA KOLESAR is the founder and spiritual director of the IDEAL Society. A pedagogue, speaker and poet, she dedicated her life to promoting an ideal of fraternity among people. Natacha was born in Russia and received her Ph.D. in philosophy in Czechoslovakia, where she worked as a university professor. She then lived in France and the United States before settling in Canada.
She was a pupil of the Master Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov, in whose spiritual philosophy she found a true pedagogy inclusive of both our human and spiritual identities. It is with this educational vision that IDEAL was founded in 1996. She traveled around the world sharing the wisdom of the sacred sciences and the importance of awakening to one’s spiritual nature. Her Teachings address themes of self-knowledge and shed light on the fundamental questions of our origins, destiny and the nature of our earthly experience. Although she passed away in 2013, her loving presence is felt by all through her legacy of teachings preserved in a large collection of audio and video recordings and through her written poetry. The intensity of her spiritual love continues to inspire many seekers.
A word from the founder
The seed of the IDEAL community was born when its founder, Natacha Kolesar, gathered around her a group of friends to experiment with the concept of an extended family.
The IDEAL community continues to promote the vision issued by its founder.
